Great artists and friends Makunouchi Bento (ogredung, miasmah, one, kikapu) are back at camomille with what we think is their best work to date. Lament of the fishing robot ep is motion and color captured and translated into sound. It is immersing in its great musical and emotional depth and in its force of character. These 10 minutes of music serve greatly to prove our point, Makunouchi Bento are left unscathed by current trends and continue to do what they do best, all the while evolving into different entities as time goes by. On this ep they explore more cinematic themes; as you listen to the ep, you feel like you're following a script of tones and waves. A somewhat liquid combat between winter-time coldness and atmospheres filled of akward beauty.This ep serves as the conceptual follow up to their release on arhiva7 and contains beautiful art by Santiago Morilla (cover) and Andrei Dorokhin (bonus art). A wonderfull release by our romanian friends, Makunouchi Bento.

yessum, this is it.
Makunouchi Bento without a doubt have a sound that is their own, now. Following them over the years, I've often kept a close ear to what it is they are working on.
The last few releases (Miopedi, Trcutu, Balada unui creier mic, Lament) by the duo have shown enormous growth in their style. Where they were once a bit niche in their sound, they're now much more patient, personable and slick. The delivery of the music or the tools used is less important now than the worlds or stories that unfold with each song and it seems as if this progression has come naturally rather than forced because its hard to spot any one single influence in their music.
Lament of the fishing robot is short, but its a great album for anyone into the etherreal, soundscape, or slowly evolving melodies.. or all 3 and more. A mature record that doesnt demand maturity from it's listener. An emotionally charged and nostaligic listen that can also be listened to and enjoyed in a stark, emotionless, technical, enviroment. a favorite releases of 2005.
